, it is at the united states and the so-called t-5 plus 1, a group of counselries meeting with negotiation with iran over the last several years. you know, i think president obama has been clear what his red line is. his is iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon. if they make a move in that direction, the u.s. will use whatever options necessary. israel has a different red line. they try to nudge the negotiators and the other international parties. >> shannon: you mentioned the president and his red line. he has taken criticism this week from the g.o.p. official nominee, mitt romney. let's tick a listen at what he had to say this week. >> every american was relieved the day president obama gave the order and seal team 6 took out bin laden. on another front, every american is less secure today because he has failed to slow iran's nuclear threat. >> doctor, he did praise him for taking out bin laden but said that the president has failed when it comes to this particular issue of the nuclear threat. we are also getting news that iran has signed a deal with north korea to share laboratories and technolo

'm a forecaster, but we, you know, the united states is in this sort of very different position. you might argue japan, somewhat different circumstances, very high domestic savings rate, managed to sort of face a different set of constraints in that environment, but i ultimately agree with vince that, like, you have to deal with this problem, and you can't get around it. but we're operating under somewhat different constraints. >> john? >> yeah. which is everything's fine until it's not fine. but -- >> i didn't say not -- [laughter] >> the point is this time is different.

congestion in the united states and then guess what? schools go back in session, we come back from vacation. and oh, no, we don't move on the roads. of course the tuesday after labor day, that's when all of the local school systems are finally back in. all the school buses are back on the roads and all of the parents are home from vacation. and they're all right out there on our roads. >> reporter: what are the biggest trouble spots? >> biggest trouble spots, you know, obviously, 95. 66. 50. you call them every morning, danella. you know. >> yes. >> and the shame of it is is that it means a lot more hours of lost time for everybody out on the roads. everyone is going to get a pretty quick reminder in the few days after terrible traffic tuesday, you know, of just why we have some of the worst congestion in the united states. >> reporter: well, do you have any tips for us, outside of chartering a helicopter to avoid the roads? what can we do to make it better? >> move next door to work, but if you don't have the extra half million dollars to buy that home, adjust your attitude. things will be
